Love You Dear

She never said, uttered a word
She never did cry.
She only looked at me
With her wide open eyes.

Eagerly when I took her palm
To convey my love and to take in my arm.
It was so chilled like ice -
And she was numb and mum.

I only could read the tragedies in them
In those dry patches of tears, down her cheek,
They spoke about her parting pain-
Till the time they could drip.

Still she left a smile in her lips
As a reminiscent of her love for me,
Kept her fingers still stretched out
To hold me finally with love.

Love you dear, with a love for good
Wherever is your abode.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
